Headed home on the Hardy today as the bike display showed 3:00 PM, the odometer hit 30,000. That's in 26 months of riding.

Two questions, on the Hardy or Harley?
Kilometers or Miles oh wait would a Harley even have kilometers?
In any event that is some decent miles in about 2 years.

That's a lot of miles in a cager, but on a bike, that's crazy.

All that many miles and you still had time to plank on the side of the road.

Dang dude, that's close to what I was averaging, when I was riding a motorcycle for a living.

I can't imagine how much you must just go out and ride.
Why u got so many miles?! I must know!

When it's not raining, I'm riding year round. Commute to work is 10 miles one way, but it's about 40 miles just to get to any decent roads on the weekend and I usually ride Saturday and Sunday

Congrats!

Ive put 18,500 from feb 2010 to feb 2012 but slowing way down. Your lucky to get that much seat time, awsome.

She has treated you that good and how do you return the favor? Dont forget to add a little antifreeze to your baby.

Wow that is a huge amount of mileage! I have put 2000 miles on my Ninja in a year. But, my average ride length both in miles and time is increasing a lot. My early rides were frequently less then ten miles while I was learning the basics. The heat last summer reduced my riding, maybe this summer will not be so brutal.
